Apparel & Accessories Breastfeeding Giveaway Review

MommyMilk Creations Breast Milk Pendant Review & Giveaway (CLOSED 7/10)


I was so intrigued when I heard about MommyMilk Creations’ breastmilk pendants. Buh…what now? You can read the MommyMilk Creations blog post to learn about how these are made, but she essentially plasticizes your breastmilk, preserves it in resin, then turns it into a beautiful keepsake.

I’m a little sad that I only have one picture of each of my children nursing, and I’m not in any of them (the rest of me anyway!) I also don’t have a mother’s necklace, or anything with all my children’s names on them, so I love the idea of putting a bit of my milk into the piece, since there is a lot of love involved in nursing children! Even so, it’s very discreet, and no one but me (um, and now the internet) needs to know that my milk is in the necklace!

It’s really hard to say what I think about this, it doesn’t seem like words will do it justice. It’s absolutely beautiful and I will treasure it. Allicia was so wonderful to work with, and the whole process was very easy. She only needs a little bit of milk, and I did find it easier to just hand express a bit as she suggested. I packaged it in a milk storage bag, then a Ziploc bag, then mailed it off to her. I received the necklace much more quickly than I expected!

You choose the size, shape, color (or no color), bead shape and text/names. I loved the small pendants, but I also loved the idea of putting a name on the pendant, and I knew I couldn’t do just one!

While no two pendants are exactly the same, Allicia has lots of examples to help you decide what you like.


Prices range from $39.99 for a small pendant, to $82.00 for a pendant in sterling silver, and you can even choose a keepsake instead, if you prefer it not to be jewelry. While the pendants don’t come with a necklace, it can be slipped on just about any you have, or she has lots to choose from in her Etsy shop.

There are many more styles available than those I’ve mentioned, and if you are not a nursing mom, she has first curl lock of hair keepsake pendants as well!

      I ordered in Oct 2013, from her Etsy shop. She received my milk in Jan 2014. I have not received my pendant. I know of others waiting longer that have not received. And others who have seen their finished pendants posted on FB, (on April 21), but she has not shipped them out–even 2 months later. 🙁
